For The Love Of Hares and Tusal

As you may or may not know, I love Paulette's Hares. This is Summer Hares and the picture below is Spring Hares. They are so cute. They will be made into little pillows, when Cheryl and I can get togeather. She has had the nasty flu thing. When she is done with that she will probably be heading back to Canada for a quick visit with her Mom.

I am almost done with this needlebook from BBD. It comes from the book A Stitcher's Journey. I love this book and plan on doing a number the designs. I did change up the colors some. Please forgive me for not ironing any of the pictures tonight. It's late. I did this design on 32ct Maple Sugar linen using CC and GA fibers.
Last but not least is my jar of little bits. You can see all the red from the Hares. Thanks for stopping by and leaving great comments. I will get to my emails tomorrow, so please don't think that I am ignoring them. Until next time...Happy Stitching. Deborah

What lovely stitching you have been doing. The colours in your TUSAL jar are great! Isn't it amazing how quick those little ORT's start to fill the jar!

Wonderful finishes, Deborah! The more I see the Hares stitched up, the more I want to stitch them.


Love the wreath in your blog header! Did you create it? Very unique and very refreshing!

Your hares are so sweet and I love the BBD needlebook. That book has so many wonderful projects it's hard to choose which one to stitch first.

The Hares are adorable. I broke down and bought the Stitcher's Journey because of all the cute things I kept seeing, like your needle book piece. I love the flowers in the center. So many things to stitch and so little time!

I smile every time I see the hares! I am very fortunate to have stitched two of the models, so I get to keep them. :) I can't wait to see how you finish them! And I love the BBD piece, as well.
